The County Council Land Charges section is responsible for providing information in connection with Local Land Charge searches. The information provided answers questions on highways maintainable at public expense, road schemes and proposed traffic schemes.
Generally Solicitors and Licensed Conveyancers submit a search request to the relevant District Council. The search is a statutory requirement in any property or land-based transaction and reveals any planning, environmental health, financial and highway restrictions recorded upon the search subject. A fee is charged for this search. Search fees can be found on the relevant district councils website.
